Top 5 reasons to watch the FIBA 3x3 World Tour Prague Masters
PRAGUE (FIBA 3x3 World Tour 2018) - The FIBA 3x3 World Tour and Kyle Montgomery are back for the 3rd Masters of the season in one of the best cities in the world: Prague in the Czech Republic. And here are the top 5 reasons to watch the Prague Masters all weekend!
At 1, we may have a new number 1 player in the world on Monday next week! That’s right, Stefan Stojacic has climbed to number 2 and bridged most of the gap with Dejan Majstorovic. You know how our 12-month ranking works, right? If Novi Sad Al Wahda don’t win in Prague like last year or Liman Tesla Voda make it to the semi-finals, we will have a new king of 3x3.
At 2, the issue for Mr Robot is that Novi Sad Al Wahda have made Prague their second home in the last few years. Remember when I spoke to Bulut and company about this? They won the Prague Masters 3 times in 5 editions!
Coming up at 3, it’s the high-flying Ondrej Siska. The 24-year-old had the dunk of the Utsunomiya Masters last week and has more bounce than a car in an old Snoop Dog music video. Will the Czech star lead Humpolec Bernard to their first Masters title in front of his home fans?
At 4, we may have one of the best Russian teams in a long time and guess what? Their oldest player is 23 years old. Team Gagarin shocked the world by winning the Tinkoff Moscow Open Challenger earlier this summer. Keep an eye on the 21-year-old Alexander Zuev. You may be looking at a future #1 player in the world.
Last but not least, we’re changing our historic location in Prague but have no fear, we’re moving to an even more iconic site in front of the Prague Castle! It used to be a seat of power for the Kings of Bohemia, now it’s the Kings of 3x3.
